Autumn Yoga Retreat at Allerton
Allerton Park & Retreat Center
Fall 2014 - 2nd Annual! November 14,15,16
Presented by Kelsey Bourgeois and Amara Yoga & Arts

Join us for a beautiful early autumn weekend of yoga, rest and rejuvenation at the historic Allerton Park & Retreat Center (Allerton) in Monticello, Illinois. Located 2 ½ hours out of Chicago and only ½ hour out of Champaign-Urbana, Allerton is a hidden treasure with 1,500 acres of woodland, riparian and prairie areas, sculpture gardens, hiking trails and meadows. Take a step out of the busyness of your every day life to find your bliss with us in this unique and peaceful setting filled with art and natural beauty.

Yoga and meditation sessions will be offered throughout the weekend by Kelsey Bourgeois and special guests. Sessions will be available for both the beginner yogi as well as the seasoned practitioner. Choose from a variety of classes: high-energy yoga classes, alignment-based classes, and classes to soothe your nervous system. There will also be lecture/discussion about the history of yoga and the lifestyle of a yogi, hiking and exploration of the grounds and optional in-room massages and facials. Relax with a glass of wine in the beautiful Georgian-style manor house reminiscent of another time.
